Thanks Sticki!
They're surprisingly complex when you look at them closely!

Exactly! Glad you took the photo and put it on here, almost reminds me of the shapes at the centre of a passion flower!

I thought you had lost your love in a mist. It is intricate.

Thanks 6d - I think that this blue one is the one to have. I'm not too sure about some of the cultivars.
This is in Sues garden - it's going to give me its seeds Lulu!

These are very common over here Camillia, almost weeds in fact! Sometimes we just don't look closely enough.

No Meanie I am sure that I have never seen something like this around my locality.

That surprise me - the seeds are used in Indian cookery and home medicine.

Now, I need to ask with other garden lovers about this.Do you know what is it called in India (hindi)?

Camillia, it's proper name is Nigella damascena, have a look at this link, it might help you with the answer you require .....
